Sunkissed Velvet

Hey there poisers!
So I've come in contact with a lot of people who've expressed their fears for wearing velvet. When I asked why, some of the answers were that it's too textured or too soft, delicate, heavy etc some even said they didn't know how to wear it. Before that I had no idea that there was any commotion about the beauty. But then I was quickly taken back to my childhood and I remembered when my mom dressed me and my sisters in a particular collection of velvet two piece outfit (top and pants). I had a yellow one disliked it only because it looked different I thought. I guess I couldn't make out what it was about the darn special thing. Whoever said different has to be bad eh?  ใ‚ท

So anyways I decided to do some research about what I nicknamed "the velvetphobia". 
Turns out velvet is back in big! And it's very elegant I must say!

There are different types of velvets, ranging from the weight and texture type to name a couple, crushed velvet, light velvet, velveteen etc. Now it would be wise to wear light velvet on a warmer day, and then any other one works great on the colder days. Yes they're actually handy when there's no one to keep you warm! True right? ☺

Since many velvet clothes come in nice bold colours, it is always a nice idea to pair it with a neutral colour in order to let out the glow of it. Or you can also wear a one tone look or one piece velvet item just like I have done. 

Also, I have seen some men wear this same material recently in the form of suits and blazers and quite dashing I must say.

Can you identify any velvets around you and see if you can admire the look, what's your take on it now? You can find them in form of tops, skirts, dresses, shoes and backpacks all around you.

Sweaters, Pleats And Sneakers.

Hey guys! So it's the last day of 2017!!! How was everyone's Christmas? Aren't we truly lucky or rather blessed that Christ came as a gift for us?  In this post I chose to style a green sweater, with this gorgeous pleated skirt and these cool pair of white sneakers from @fashionaccessries (Ig) and then I gracefully draped over a cream raglan overcoat. This look can be worn casually on a day out in town especially during the holiday shenanigans. It can also be dressed up by simply sliding on a pair of heels to look even more sleek. Can you imagine the pop the in transformation?

I will also be styling this sweater differently in a separate post which will be my next post so stay tuned if you'd like to see it or click the subscribe button (up top) to be notified once it's up.

Well hey there! Issa my first post of the year! Let me officially wish you guys a happy happy new year! What was your biggest or most favourite  milestone in 2017? For me I would say one of my favourite ones would be the fact that I started blogging... although I'm not where I want to be yet due to lack of time and other things that have been taking me away from you guys (like my crazy work schedule for starters) so yeah I'm unable to give it my all just yet however I'm quite content thus far and I do believe that this journey is going be getting a lot more exciting this year! I would like to work on quality first before quantity, consistency and helpfulness among others so help me God. Amen. 
2017 was definitely a year of blessing, changes and growth for me. I had a few challenges in the last little bit of the year but I came back strong because yo girl is relentless. The devil thought he had me but through God's help with continuous and fervent prayers from myself, my…
